Hello 2019!

2018 has been a busy year. I stopped writing here mid of last year because I got promoted at work (yay!) but has been really busy.

One of my goal for this year (and was my goal last year) is to write 1 post each week. Last year is also the first time I didn't have a year-end summary. Oh well. Let's  be positive as we welcome the new year.

New Year's Eve I arrived in Canada last 2015 and I spent NYE for 2016, 2017, and 2018 thinking and dreaming of watching the fireworks in Downtown Vancouver. I didn't go those previous years because of the cold and crowd.

Day 1 - The Merlion and Google Office It was my first time flying with Tiger Airways, and it was a decent experience since I was sleeping most of the time. The flight was around 6 in the morning, but we left 30 minutes later because of the airport traffic at NAIA Terminal 1.
